New York – ISRAMWORLD is planning to offer a series of ultra-luxury individual tours under the banner of The Elite Travel Collection by Belder-Gray, it was announced today in New York. “I believe the future of our business is in catering specifically to the very upscale traveler,” says A. Ady Gelber, President and Chief Executive of ISRAMWORLD, the tour company founded 41 years ago that offers tours and packages to some 60 countries, “which is why we have decided to establish this private label subsidiary.”A series of a dozen individual itineraries in five countries that make up The Elite Travel Collection will be offered by ISRAMWORLD’s newly acquired private label subsidiary, Belder-Gray, a company whose name and profile evoke travel from an earlier, more gracious era.“The Elite Travel Collection will comprise itineraries that feature the finest rooms or suites at the finest hotels, a car and driver throughout, highly sophisticated touring that includes private off-hour visits to many sites, as well as a mélange of the highest quality meals and experiences, all of which speak to the expectations of the high-end and private jet traveler,” says Gelber.All of the Elite Travel Collection itineraries are templates that can be adjusted to meet clients’ specific requirements, and Belder-Gray’s specialists will also plan purely custom-tailored travel. “In addition,” adds Gelber, “Belder-Gray will provide whatever extra services a high-profile client requires, including confidentiality, security personnel and secretaries.”“The Elite Travel Collection will be available only through travel agents,” Gelber stresses. Full details of the Elite Travel Collection by Belder-Gray will be outlined in a luxurious 64-page brochure set to appear in October. The Belder-Gray website will launch at the same time.For more information on ISRAMWORLD, visit: www.isramworld.com. >
As of now, the site does not have data on pedestrian noise, but perhaps this is a feature that will come as the site is further developed. More to come! A new tool is available that could provide some interesting truths about noise and traffic in Boston. Although it is still in its early stages of development, Total Home Score is a resource designed for prospective home buyers or renters to better understand hidden factors that may ultimately impact their decisions about where to live. Liberty Mutual and Solaria Labs are behind the burgeoning effort.The site uses two categories for location scores: a quiet score and a road score. The quiet score is dependent upon noise levels in the surrounding area, taking into account busy roads, highways, trains, and more, whereas the road score reviews data on speeding cars and aggressive driving to determine ones ability to enjoy activities like walking, biking, or jogging with greater peace of mind.We decided to plug some North End locations into to the site. The search results are shown below.*Advertisement* North End Road Scores:The neighborhood scores well in road score category. As shown below, even the areas with a slightly yellow tint by the Garden still have an above average score. Good news for pedestrians and bikers! North End Quiet Scores:Perhaps unsurprisingly, the areas highlighted in red seem to be located close to the highways. You can see the North Street red zones are close by the Callahan Tunnel and the red zone at Legends Way is right near 93.In addition, there seem to be a few areas around Hanover Street also shown in red.
